Write Now! Children's Literary Award
The Write Now Awards are presented annually and recognise excellence in writing, providing an exciting opportunity for local students to develop their writing skills and be rewarded for their efforts.
The awards encourage literacy, foster creativity and promote pride in achievement for young people.
For the first time, entries are open to young people 13-16 years. This year will also include a special category for young people aged 12-24 years, which relates specifically to life in Maitland. The purpose of this category is to obtain young people’s thoughts and opinions on a variety of issues and trends. Responses may be used to inform planning for future services in the Maitland LGA.
In 2020, entrants in this category will explore the topic, Maitland's Digital Future: Life in 10 years. ‘Technology has changed the way we communicate, travel, shop, learn and play. How will technology shape your life in 10 years?
Details on how to enter coming soon.
